Additional jobs such as removing old tiles will attract increased costs. Cutting tiles to fit the wall or floor surfaces also requires extra labour.

  • What type of tiling job do you usually do? Always choose a tiler who specialises in kitchen tiling services to increase the success rate of the project.
  • How long have you been in the tiling industry? Ensure the tradie has sufficient work experiences and has proven to be competitive in the field. Check previous accomplishments and compare them from other contractors.
  • Do you have customer references? It is important to ask for testimonials or a copy of customer references to source feedback from previous clients. This will help you learn more about the tradie along with his professionalism, reliability and work ethics.
